Don Campau with Greg Gray
State Of The Onion credits
heart keep pumping
this song was about the then current topic of artificial hearts implanted into the first guy, Barney Clark in 1982.
you can’t find me
early Campau multi track pop
I had a friend Greg Dodge ( a friend from work at the time ) who played drums on this song. I think he also sings backup.
what I really meant
goofball pop experimentalism fooling with new found effects
My brother Gary steps in to sing lead about doing damage to the governor at the time, George Deukmejian.
i did a few versions of this song and never really nailed the pre-conceived intended funkiness.
i love this business
ridiculous in joke funk
cracking me up
at the time this song sent profound waves of emotion through me later, i did some live versions of it.
just some instrumental goofing
another predictable instrumental
rock island line
some punk rock folk, a style that mined heavily at the time
a slow, drawn out weird self confessional
layers of the onion
just named it this to fit in with the title of thew album. case keyboard noodling.
a song i was a quite proud of at the time and did a couple versions of later. how the hate of the world is self indicting.
hooray for the followers
a sarcastic jab at new age and spiritual bliss ninnies.
possible plan #2
guitar instrumental is a series
that’s how i feel
classic early campau, Dino Dimuro even covered it years later.
state of the onion
another ad libbed instro with cheap keyboards.
two guys at work
two pals do some jock and locker room talk
a braggadocio cock rock mess
